Two in one day wow...this is actually from the other day..
And to update, husband now has a cast on his wrist, a black one. He said it is the most popular color.
Yesterday was one of those days. It started well, got home from work (I work the night shift) and had some breakfast, had a chat with a friend on line, and bought tickets to see the group Keane.
Of course buying the tickets was a bit of a chore. It was a presale for members of their website. My daughter is a big fan and a member of their site, but when they went on sale she was at school so I couldn't log on. I also didn't know the special password they wanted inorder to purchase the tickets. Finally I decided it was just easier to join the site myself (it is free) and after reading thru endless posts found the special password and bought the tickets.... Not a bad price either but the charges they add on is appalling. I could have bought another ticket for the all the charges.....I could rant on about that but won't....today. The show is in May at the Bank North Pavillion in Boston, which is outdoors so it should be a good time. I am going with my favorite concert mates...my two daughters. We usually make a day of it and "do" Boston at the same time. We take the train in and enjoy lunch and a wander around..should be fun.
Then the day turned sour... I was sleeping and was awoken suddenly by oldest daughter screaming she couldn't breath. I jump out of bed and find her lying on the stairs on her stomach moaning and crying. The stairs have a turn in them so she is on the landing part. I tell her she has knocked the wind out and she needs to roll over and relax. She does and starts to relax but stays on the floor. Meanwhile I start picking the food off the floor. She was carrying a plate of American chop suey and salad. Yuck..I pick it up with my fingers and wipe down the splattered walls and floor. She has hurt her back and after dosing her with some Advil she seems to calm down.
Not long after that I get a call from the husband, he has fallen on some stairs at work and hurt his back and wrist and is on the way to the ER, can I meet him there so i can drive him home. No.. the oldest (who just fell) has to be at work at 2 and the youngest has an orthodontist appt at 1:40. Cancel the ortho he suggests...No it is already a reschedule. He hangs up on me. Can't be at three places at once. I am a good multitasker but not that good.
Ok drop off youngest at ortho and take the oldest to work, driving back to the ortho the youngest is texting me "where are you etc"...I ignore it and go get her. She could have walked back to the school but I wanted her there while I scheduled the next appt and paid the bill, only one payment left yay. I drop her off at school again as there is some activity after school she wants to go to. best take the late bus I say as I am off to the ER to get dad and who knows how long that will take. no problem she says I have my house keys..wonders never cease.
Now off to ER, I finally find him on a gurney in the hallway, apparently the ER is busy and no rooms left. He is looking very pale..and in a lot of pain. Now I do sympathize I have twisted and broken more things on my body than I care to admit but you would think no one has ever had as much pain as he has..... I won't post the ensuing conversation...t&c and all. lol. Anyway turns out he has huge bruise on his back it is even swollen, and a fractured wrist...home finally with a splint and pain meds. We still have to go back at some time to get his car. Lucky for him it is his left wrist (he is right handed) I just hope he can still cook. :@@:
I have now had little sleep and have to work again that night. Today he is home from work, the youngest is home sick and still sleeping and the oldest is at school. Maybe nothing will happen if I am lucky. Fingers crossed.
